While presiding over a group study session of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on the effective implementation of the Civil Code on the afternoon of May 29, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, demanded the whole Party effectively promote the implementation of the Civil Code in order to better advance law-based governance of the country and the building of a socialist country based on the rule of law, and better protect the people's rights and interests.
Noting that the Civil Code is the first law to carry the title "code" since New China was founded in 1949, Xi said it marks a major achievement of the country in developing socialist rule of law in the new era.
The Civil Code systematically integrates the civil legal norms formed through long-term practices during more than 70 years of New China, drawing upon the Chinese nation's fine legal culture stretching back more than 5,000 years, and mankind's beneficial achievements in building a law-based civilization, Xi stressed.
